Athlete of the Week: Allis Tahahwah

Posted: Updated:
TAMA (KWWL) -

Whether it's driving hard to the bucket -- or knocking it down from the arc --

Allis Tahahwah just seems to find ways to score --

"I play AAU tournaments. I've got a lot of practice in basketball, so that helped me a lot, developing my game."

Just a sophomore this season -- Allis is the leading scorer for the Meskwaki Settlement School -- averaging around 15 a game --

that's quite an improvement for a player who saw action in just 2 varsity games the previous year -- scoring a total of 3 points --

"He has grown a lot from last year. He has matured and improved his skill. There's some big things for him, it's just being able to mature over time, is what we're looking forward to."

Allis' has a lot of help as well -- with teammates Royce Timberwolf and Terrell Grant averaging roughly 10 points a game --

while an agressive, tenacious style of defense has the Warriors reaching heights never seen in program history as they've shot out of the gate to an 11 and 1 record this season

"We just play as a team every night. We just come out looking for an open guy all the time. Pass the ball around looking for an open guy, that's all we do.

While a first ever trip to the state tournament would be an obvious goal -- the Warriors aren't looking ahead taking a one game at a time approach --

and Allis believes confidence is the key to keep this train rolling in the right direction --
